Taking Care of Our Furry Family Members

I have been sick and in bed for about three weeks now, and my most constant companions (aside from medicine and tissues) have been my furry family members. My two cats, Khaleesi and Sassenach, have been by my side through late night coughing fits, multiple fevers, and days where I’ve just needed to sleep my illness away.  I’ve heard it said so many times, but I hadn’t believed it until now.

I’m Terrified Of Having A Second Child – Part 2: The Betrayal {Guest Post}

My wife is giving birth to a second kid. There is no way around it. It’s coming – and it’s coming in less than a month from now probably.  You want to know the god’s honest truth, too?  I am terrified.  It’s terrifying on multiple levels – first, as I already discussed in the first part of this series, is the money.  But, whatever, I’ll figure that out eventually.  The real horror lay in the deep recesses of my insecurities…

Sick While Pregnant: All While Trying to be Clean, Calm and Collected

This blog post has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #WicklessWonders #CollectiveBias I just finished crying to myself in the shower. For the second time today. Why? Because I’ve been super sick this week. Like down and out, tissues stuffed in my nose, popsicles for dinner kind of sick. I’ve spent more money at my local drugstore this week than I’ve made at my job because I’ve had to call out sick…
